The Felice Brothers – Favorite Waitress

Bob Dylan comparisons have dogged The Felice Brothers since their inception. While these observations certainly aren’t unwarranted (lead singer Ian Felice’s nasal delivery has an uncanny resemblance to Dylan’s, and the band are from upstate New York’s Catskills Mountains, where Dylan and The Band hashed out The Basement Tapes), they tend to distract from the actual music. Regardless of their obvious influences, this quintet has long offered a rustic, charming, and ramshackle take on Americana. With Favorite Waitress, the group’s fifth official album and best to date, they’ve managed to let the songs, rather than their retro posturing, speak for themselves.
